Procter & Gamble Co. Launches Beauty Magazine, Rouge, in U.S.
Expect a new beauty mag to be hitting the U.S. shelves soon. Procter & Gamble Co. has expanded popular Canadian custom-published quarterly Rouge for a full-scale launch state side.
“Rouge is launching in the U.S. because we saw it as a strong, highly effective tool in Canada that helps us at P&G Beauty to develop an informative, valuable, long-term relationship with our beauty-involved consumers,” a P&G spokesman said in an e-mail.
Now this isn’t just any beauty guide either, it’s enlisting the help of mommy bloggers for content and making an online presence on top of the traditional celebrity makeup artists and experts. Their whole approach to this rollout is to use the relationship-marketing program. Offer the material for free and allow access to free coupons and discounts through different vendors that will be suitable to this niche.
